STANFORD UNIVERSITY, April 25.--The typhoid fever situation is much improved, both on the campus and in Palo Alto, and the residents of both places are rejoicing accordingly. The epidemic is practically checked now and in a short time the fever scare will be a thing of the past. One new case has developed on the campus and one in Palo Alto, but both patients have only a mild form of typhoid. As the period of incubation ends next Wednesday it is not thought that any further cases will develop after that date. There have been no cases of secondary infection up to the present time, hence all the persons coming down with the fever should be stricken with it by Wednesday next.

Doctors Are Now Satisfied That the Typhoid Epidemic Has Been Checked.

WILLOWS, April 25.— The boldest and most successful case of jail breaking by friends of a prisoner intent upon his rescue happened at an early hour this morning, when a burglar confined here was released and the triggers of revolvers were clicked to awe persons who might create an alarm. City Marshal Kinkade last evening arrested tho burglar who robbed Ben Smith's store at Maxwell last week. Smith and Constable Carpenter came from Maxwell and identified the watches and razors in the burglar's possession. This morning after daybreak two men drove in a buggy to the town jail and with a bar of iron broke open the lock. They went to the burglar, handed him a pistol and told him to come out. The one who broke the jail door drew two pistols on two others prlsners and, cursing, said: "You move and we will make hog meat of you." j The man in the buggy told his companion to hurry, as an< officer might come, whereupon the other said: "Let him come, and see what I will do." The trio drove away and no' trace" of them can be found.

ALAMEDA. April 2Z.— Matters concerning the municipal electric light plant were taken up by the City Trustees at a special meeting held for that purpose last night. Dr. H. M. Pond and William M. Bowers, the new members of the Municipal Board, have been examining the plant and investigating the manner in which it has been conducted. They believe that business of the could be bettered and increased if an all-day service for the supply of power was inaugurated. Alameda at present has no source from which to obtain electricity for manufacturing purpo5es, and there is an increasing demand for such power. Superintendent G. A. Wiese and" Julius Wittich of the municipal light works have, under instructions from the City Trustee?, canvassed the city for power natrons and have secured enough subscribes to warrant the running of the plant lor day power service, which probably will be done before long.

City Trustees Consider Plan to Run Municipal Plant During the Day.

ALAMEDA, April 23.— Morris Barron. * Park-stiet barber, now has as his most dangerous competitor far trade his wire, who until to-day wleldeU the razor aifa* scissors in his shop. She has opened a tonsorlal parlor just across the way from her husband's stand and is already cutting deeply Into his patronage. Traces unionism is the primary cause of the marital and business separation of the couple. Barron is a union man and had employed his wife to assist him In his shop, although Ehe is not a union woman, for the reason that the barbers permit no woman to join their union. Objections were made by the union to Barron having his better half work with him, and be and his place were threatened with the blacklist and boycott if he did not discharge his spouse. When Barron informed his wife that In order to retain his customers and be a good union man he would have to let her out, she retorted that If he thought more of his Barbers' Union than he did of his barber wife she would pack her things and go. And go she did. Barron has caused to be published a notice saying that he will iio longer be responsible for any bills contracted by his wife. "She has left my bed. and board ard barber ship and has started an establishment of her" own," said Barron to-night. "I have lost a non-union helpmeet, an<l guess I will have to get a union man to take her place." . , "Morris and I wrangled about union matters until I got tired," said Mrs. Earron at her new place of business. "Wh-jn he said he would have to discharge ore because I was not a member of the Barbers' Union I concluded that it was about time that we dissolved our marriage t.nlon. I mean to show him that I can make a living and not belong to any unio'n."
